The easiest way is 18" tires, for the most part however they do not sell "lowering" kits for the rear. Why do you want to lower it so much??

I actually dont want to lower it that much but the only thing i can find for the front is the 4" kit. I would like to just lower it about 2" or so... I have no clue where to order parts or anything.

What kind riding are you going to do, and why are you wanting to lower it? The only, and I mean only reason to lower the Predator is if you are flat track or drag racing. If you actually take it out on the trails, it will make it nearly impossibly to ride any rough areas. I actually had to get taller tires to lift me up some, i constantly get my rear skidplate digging into the ground.

I dont plan on doing any flat track riding.... I understand what you mean... I will probably just leave it the way it cause all my friends ride dirt bikes so i will be taking it to the track with them... Ok, so if i wanna be able to take it off any big jumps do i need to upgrade anything on there before i do? It has the Fox Racing suspension.

Probably not the right way to do it but I just adjust the "pre-load". When I bought mine used, it sat like a flat tracker. I took off the nerf bars and cranked the preload into the front and rear shocks raising it up quite a bit. I wouldn't lower it too much as mine was too low. If I picked up the front end by my bumper the springs would actually flop a tiny bit in their mounts. That's why I cranked mine up now. It rides better too I think...
